My work has explored the relationship between the legal and sociological study of religion.
This was the focus of my monograph Religion, Law and Society (Cambridge University Press, 2014) within the Cambridge Studies of Law and Society. This argued for increased collaboration between legal and sociological approaches to religion provided that the unique contributions of each discipline is preserved.
Recent work has focused upon the merits and possibilities of interdisciplinary work generally in Law. This has included the edited work The Confluence of Law and Religion and publications on Law and Religion that focus on philosophical approaches and the Handbook of the Interdisciplinary Study of Law and Religion which includes historical, sociological, political and theological perspectives.
